The first thing you see is a framed portrait of Vladimir Putin propped against a table. The Russian leader looks like a secular icon, like Lenin in his mausoleum, seemingly incapable of human expression. But this being a video installation, there is more. Standing on the table is figure in a long gown and orange balaclava, like Rasputin in womenas clothes, or a very unorthodox priest. The figure raises their skirts and a jet of urine spurts over the portrait.

The secret police have a file on you. Do you want to see it?
Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2022 10:00:22 GMT
From https:

Millions of Germans were faced with that question after the collapse of communism and the Stasi a and most of them choose ignorance rather than knowledge. Is it sometimes better to forget the past than to investigate it?

In East Germany, during the communist period, people would sometimes join a queue on the basis that if others were waiting, there must be something worth having at the end of it. Siegfried Wittenburg, whose images accompany this article, photographed this waiting-for-I-know-not-what in his home town of Rostock. It was safer to take photos than to criticise the regime in words, but only just.

The Ministry for State Security, or Stasi, kept Wittenburg under surveillance from 1972 almost until its own dissolution. The last entry in his file, which concerned some photos he had exhibited of Rostockas dilapidated old town, was dated 27 November 1989 a almost three weeks after the fall of the Berlin Wall. He knows this because he applied to see that file in 1999. Having discovered the identities of his informers, he made peace with one of them a whom the Stasi had blackmailed a and cut ties with the others. aEver since I cleaned up my past, I feel free,a says the 69-year-old. aI became more open, happier, warmer a and successful.a

Whether anybody else could see it or not, I had lost someone: my former, healthy self.

On Friday, 14 December 2012, I would experience the sudden onset of an illness that, looking back almost a decade later, bears a powerful resemblance to the narratives of those suffering from long Covid.

That night, I had plans to meet a woman I was seeing. At the time, I was working as an adjunct English professor at a local college in Westchester, New York, commuting over the George Washington Bridge from my fourth-floor walkup in Hoboken, New Jersey, and trying to persuade distracted 19-year-olds to appreciate the black comedy and cryptic comeuppances of Flannery OaConnor. After walking back to my apartment from the gym, I showered and sprayed on cologne. But before I could leave, a wave of weakness and disorientation crashed over me. My balance became wobbly, and my stomach lurched forward and back. I staggered through my apartment as if it was the cabin of a boat heaving and pitching in a storm.

A new start after 60: I quit drinking and learned to make guitars
Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2022 07:00:17 GMT
From https:

Paul Edwardsa childhood was full of music, but it faded away. Decades later, as he struggled to get over a double bereavement, it turned out to be a lifeline

When Paul Edwards left school at 15, he headed to the careers office in Salford, Greater Manchester, to speak to the man behind the glass hatch. The careers officer riffled through his little box of cards, and pulled out two. One card advertised a vacancy for a violin-makeras apprentice; the other for a precision grinder, which paid twice as much. Edwardsa mother told him there was no choice. He became a precision grinder.

He must have thought about this fork in the road many times since, because two years ago, at 62, he built a guitar. aAnd the first thing I thought was: Why didnat I do this when I left school?a

Tell us: has your life taken a new direction after the age of 60?

Elon Musk"s Twitter is fast proving that free speech at all costs is a dangerous fantasy | Nesrine Malik
Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2022 06:00:18 GMT
From https:

Reinstating the likes of Donald Trump and Kanye West looks likely to turn the social media site into an extremist ghetto

Free speech absolutists are like the cocky audience of a spectator sport a they think they could do better than the players, if they were just allowed a crack at it. To them, speech should be as free as possible, period. Nowhere is their oversimplification of the issue more evident than on social media, where abuse and disinformation have created a new frontier of regulation a and with it a cohort of disingenuous free speech warriors.

These absolutists are so unaccustomed to facing consequences for their actions that they have pushed the idea that a censoring awokea orthodoxy now prevails, and is a threat to freedom of expression. Elon Musk is among them, but since his takeover of Twitter he is having to learn quickly that free speech is not simply about saying whatever you want, unchecked, but about negotiating complicated compromises.

Action is needed right now to end sexual violence in conflict | Angelina Jolie
Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2022 06:30:17 GMT
From https:

Despite pledges from governments worldwide, not nearly enough has been done over the past decade to help survivors and deter perpetrators

Almost a decade ago, more than 150 countries joined the global declaration of commitment to end sexual violence in conflict. They promised to bring perpetrators to justice, to put survivorsa needs first, and to take other practical steps to end impunity.

These were lofty goals and there has been some progress, including a few prosecutions at the national level, the adoption of the Murad Code and the establishment of the Global Survivors Fund. But it has not been nearly enough to meet the needs of survivors, or to deter perpetrators from using rape as a weapon of war in almost every new conflict in the past decade.

Bitcoin and ethereum prices have plummeted, but it is unlikely the US will ban cryptocurrencies soon

The epic collapse of wunderkind Sam Bankman-Friedas $32bn (APS27bn) crypto empire, FTX, looks set to go down as one of the great financial debacles of all time. With a storyline full of celebrities, politicians, sex and drugs, the future looks bright for producers of feature films and documentaries. But, to paraphrase Mark Twain, rumours of the death of crypto itself have been much exaggerated.

True, the loss of confidence in aexchangesa such as FTX a essentially crypto financial intermediaries a almost surely means a sustained steep drop in prices for the underlying assets.

Teachers and parents canat detect this new form of plagiarism. Tech companies could step in a if they had the will to do so

Parents and teachers across the world are rejoicing as students have returned to classrooms. But unbeknownst to them, an unexpected insidious academic threat is on the scene: a revolution in artificial intelligence has created powerful new automatic writing tools. These are machines optimised for cheating on school and university papers, a potential siren song for students that is difficult, if not outright impossible, to catch.

Of course, cheats have always existed, and there is an eternal and familiar cat-and-mouse dynamic between students and teachers. But where once the cheat had to pay someone to write an essay for them, or download an essay from the web that was easily detectable by plagiarism software, new AI language-generation technologies make it easy to produce high-quality essays.

Brazil look unified and have strength in depth to cope without Neymar | Juninho Pernambucano

From https:

The World Cup favourites showed enough in their win against Serbia to suggest they can perform well against Switzerland even without their star player

Brazil had a decent start to their 2022 World Cup. The first game of the tournament is always a little bit more difficult. An early wrong turn, a miscontrolled ball or a badly placed pass can dictate the story of the game. A team that wants to go on to win the tournament need to realise that and manage the raw emotions and the overall energy of those first minutes. Brazil did that in their 2-0 win against Serbia. But letas be careful. The three points does not guarantee anything, not even progress to the knockout stage. The players need to know that humility and respect is key here and you can never have too much of that.

Now comes a game against another European competitor, Switzerland. Football is exciting because we will never be able to fully understand it, but a win on Monday and early qualification for the second round is what the coach, Tite, is after. Then he could use the third game to rotate the squad somewhat and try a few different tactical things for the battles ahead.

Saudi Arabia have been bringing the noise in Qatar. Fans have travelled in numbers greater than any other country, with only Argentina coming close. The emerald green shirt is a common sight across Doha. Theyare on the corniche and in the metro and, in their first two Group C fixtures, they have generated a fearsome atmosphere within the ground.

It may seem an observation that ought not to have to be made, but the Saudi fanbase in Qatar is made up of both men and women. At Education City on Saturday afternoon, perhaps one in 20 of those making their way into the stadium were female, making them equivalent to the number of women there to support Poland.

From https:

Siberian cold front forecast to push into China, Mongolia and then UK by Wednesday

A large area of high pressure covering the whole of eastern Europe is bringing severely low temperatures across Siberia. In a part of the world where temperatures are often below freezing at this time of year, the mercury has been 20C to 25C below average in areas over the weekend, with central and eastern Russia experiencing temperatures widely of -25C to -45C.

Over the next couple of days, westerly winds will result in temperatures rising above average in northern Russia but temperatures will remain 10C to 20C below normal in southern Russia. The orientation of the high-pressure system will allow northerly winds to send the cold air southwards across central and eastern Asia over the next few days. Temperatures will fall widely below average here too, with northern and eastern parts of China and Mongolia particularly affected. Temperatures here will fall 10C to 20C below normal by midweek as the same area of high pressure builds in and traps the cold air with temperatures struggling to rise above freezing by day.

I meet Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie the day after she delivers and records her Reith Lecture for the BBC. She is a commanding presence: flawless to look at, serene in her confidence, vivid and trenchant in her quest to smash every point and win every argument. We meet at Broadcasting House a few hours before she leaves London for Lagos: the writer now splits her time between Nigeria and the US. In the former, she says, alife is louder, more raucous, more joyful, my cousins are there. People come into the house all the time. In the US, I have silence and I need silence as well.a Itas a neat, fleeting snapshot of who she is, troublemaker and thinker, with enough self-awareness to make space for both.

The theme for the four Reith Lectures this year is freedom, and Ngozi Adichieas contribution, which will launch the series this Wednesday on Radio 4, is on freedom of speech. The word was that it would be a cat-among-the-pigeons moment, making all the liberals in the incredibly curated audience clutch their pearls. The stated intention is, as youad expect from Reithas mission, to educate and entertain. But the subtext, I think, is to set a grenade off under some issue of the day.

The GOP made surprise gains in immigrant enclaves in Brooklyn, as Republicans slammed Democrats as asoft on crimea

When political pundits predicted a national ared wavea in the midterm elections, they never imagined that one of the few areas it would actually surface would be southern Brooklyn, New York.

They werenat imagining Sunset Park, a working-class area where nearly three in four residents are people of color: a tight-knit Mexican community on its west side and a fast-growing Chinese American community to the east. There are no Whole Foods or hipster cafes, but plenty of mouth-watering taquerias and hand-pulled noodle joints. At the park, when itas nice out, Latin dance music intermingles with old Mandarin pop songs until the sun goes down.

The emerald green shirt is a common sight across Doha. Theyare on the corniche and in the metro and, in their first two Group C fixtures, they have generated a fearsome atmosphere within the ground.

It may seem an observation that ought not to have to be made, but the Saudi fanbase in Qatar is made up of both men and women.

Whether anybody else could see it or not, I had lost someone: my former, healthy self.

On Friday, 14 December 2012, I would experience the sudden onset of an illness that, looking back almost a decade later, bears a powerful resemblance to the narratives of those suffering from long Covid.

That night, I had plans to meet a woman I was seeing. At the time, I was working as an adjunct English professor at a local college in Westchester, New York, commuting over the George Washington Bridge from my fourth-floor walkup in Hoboken, New Jersey, and trying to persuade distracted 19-year-olds to appreciate the black comedy and cryptic comeuppances of Flannery OaConnor. After walking back to my apartment from the gym, I showered and sprayed on cologne. But before I could leave, a wave of weakness and disorientation crashed over me. My balance became wobbly, and my stomach lurched forward and back. I staggered through my apartment as if it was the cabin of a boat heaving and pitching in a storm.

The secret police have a file on you. Do you want to see it?

From https:

Millions of Germans were faced with that question after the collapse of communism and the Stasi a and most of them choose ignorance rather than knowledge. Is it sometimes better to forget the past than to investigate it?

In East Germany, during the communist period, people would sometimes join a queue on the basis that if others were waiting, there must be something worth having at the end of it. Siegfried Wittenburg, whose images accompany this article, photographed this waiting-for-I-know-not-what in his home town of Rostock. It was safer to take photos than to criticise the regime in words, but only just.

The Ministry for State Security, or Stasi, kept Wittenburg under surveillance from 1972 almost until its own dissolution. The last entry in his file, which concerned some photos he had exhibited of Rostockas dilapidated old town, was dated 27 November 1989 a almost three weeks after the fall of the Berlin Wall. He knows this because he applied to see that file in 1999. Having discovered the identities of his informers, he made peace with one of them a whom the Stasi had blackmailed a and cut ties with the others. aEver since I cleaned up my past, I feel free,a says the 69-year-old. aI became more open, happier, warmer a and successful.a

Reinstating the likes of Donald Trump and Kanye West looks likely to turn the social media site into an extremist ghetto

Free speech absolutists are like the cocky audience of a spectator sport a they think they could do better than the players, if they were just allowed a crack at it. To them, speech should be as free as possible, period. Nowhere is their oversimplification of the issue more evident than on social media, where abuse and disinformation have created a new frontier of regulation a and with it a cohort of disingenuous free speech warriors.

These absolutists are so unaccustomed to facing consequences for their actions that they have pushed the idea that a censoring awokea orthodoxy now prevails, and is a threat to freedom of expression. Elon Musk is among them, but since his takeover of Twitter he is having to learn quickly that free speech is not simply about saying whatever you want, unchecked, but about negotiating complicated compromises.

Despite pledges from governments worldwide, not nearly enough has been done over the past decade to help survivors and deter perpetrators

Almost a decade ago, more than 150 countries joined the global declaration of commitment to end sexual violence in conflict. They promised to bring perpetrators to justice, to put survivorsa needs first, and to take other practical steps to end impunity.

These were lofty goals and there has been some progress, including a few prosecutions at the national level, the adoption of the Murad Code and the establishment of the Global Survivors Fund. But it has not been nearly enough to meet the needs of survivors, or to deter perpetrators from using rape as a weapon of war in almost every new conflict in the past decade.

Breaking the silence: movies grapple with the #MeToo movement

From https:

This season sees Oscar-tipped dramas She Said, Women Talking and TA!r all confront the difficulties of women dealing with the fallout of sexual assault

The beginning of the #MeToo movement, as a cultural reckoning on endemic sexual misconduct and abuse, can be roughly dated by the click of a mouse. On 5 October 2017, the New York Times published an investigation into the film producer Harvey Weinstein, a Hollywood titan with a decades-long history of systemic abuse, triggering an outpouring of recrimination and recognition on and offline. (The phrase #MeToo was coined over a decade earlier by activist Tarana Burke, as a way for Black women to share their stories of sexual violence.)

That first moment a reporters and editors hovering around a computer screen, cursor lingering on the apublisha button a is the narrative climax of She Said, a new film adaptation of reporters Jodi Kantor and Megan Twoheyas book on the Weinstein investigation. Five years after the start of the movement, She Said is the most overt of so-called a#MeToo moviesa a films which depict revelations of sexual abuse, process the upheaval of powerful perpetrators, grapple with the consequences, or envision a path forward. The film, directed by Unorthodoxas Maria Schrader, is literally the story behind the story that kicked everything off, the Hollywood version of the mission to uncover what had been an open secret in Hollywood for years.

Ximei review a inspiring Ai Weiwei-produced portrait of Chinese Aids activist
Date: Mon, 28 Nov 2022 09:00:20 GMT
From https:

Liu Ximei, who was diagnosed with HIV at 10, is shown as a dauntless campaigner whose home provides a warm haven for patients still neglected in China

Produced by Ai Weiwei, this is a rousing portrait of Liu Ximei, an astonishingly resilient Aids activist; it also sheds light on a controversial government campaign that accelerated the epidemic in 1990s China. During the first half of the decade, poor farmers were encouraged to donate their blood in exchange for money. Due to a lack of health and safety standards, a staggering number of donors as well as those who received transfusions contracted HIV. In Ximeias province of Henan, more than 300,000 villagers live with the debilitating effects of the condition, all while facing societal discrimination and neglect.

In following Ximeias day-to-day routines, the film captures the gruelling reality of simply making your voice heard in an environment that is determined to strip HIV-positive people of their humanity. The lively thread that binds this stigmatised community together, Ximei makes endless trips to the central hospital where she demands better medical treatment on behalf of other HIV-positive people, many of whom are elderly and illiterate. In contrast to the indifference of government officials, the warm atmosphere of Ximeias home, a haven for those living with HIV, attests to the importance of community and grassroots organisation. Ximei herself was abandoned by her birth parents; later, when she was diagnosed with HIV at the age of 10 after a blood transfusion, it was her foster family that nurtured her sense of compassion.

From https:

Siberian cold front forecast to push into China, Mongolia and then UK by Wednesday

A large area of high pressure covering the whole of eastern Europe is bringing severely low temperatures across Siberia. In a part of the world where temperatures are often below freezing at this time of year, the mercury has been 20C to 25C below average in areas over the weekend, with central and eastern Russia experiencing temperatures widely of -25C to -45C.

Over the next couple of days, westerly winds will result in temperatures rising above average in northern Russia but temperatures will remain 10C to 20C below normal in southern Russia. The orientation of the high-pressure system will allow northerly winds to send the cold air southwards across central and eastern Asia over the next few days. Temperatures will fall widely below average here too, with northern and eastern parts of China and Mongolia particularly affected. Temperatures here will fall 10C to 20C below normal by midweek as the same area of high pressure builds in and traps the cold air with temperatures struggling to rise above freezing by day.
